Sakkari in the 2nd round of the US Open

Following her win over Italy’s Camila Giorgi (6-1, 6-0), Greek tennis player Maria Sakari will compete tonight for the US Open’s 2nd round. Her fight is expected to begin about 1 hour before midnight at court 5 and her opponent is 33-year-old Chinese, Peng Shuai.

Shuai Peng would say that he is not in good shape at the moment, but Maria should be fully focused and not distracted from her goal because the Chinese are considered to be quite experienced tennis players, having been a semi-finalist at the US Open before from 4 years and qualifier in this tournament, as he has 5 wins at the Flushing Meadows.
